The Ducks have reassigned defenseman Shea Theodore and goaltender Dustin Tokarski to the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim's primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Theodore, 21 (8/3/95), has collected one assist with a +1 rating and four penalty minutes (PIM) in four appearances with Anaheim this season. Since making his NHL debut last season, the 6-1, 194-pound defenseman has earned 3-6=9 points with a +8 rating and six PIM in 23 career NHL games.
Selected by Anaheim in the first round (26th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft, Theodore has scored 13-37=50 points in 65 career AHL games with San Diego (2015-present) and Norfolk (2014-15). He was named the Western Hockey League's (WHL) Defenseman of the Year in 2014-15 and concluded his WHL career as Seattle's all-time leader in goals (58) and points (212) by a defenseman. Theodore also won gold with Team Canada at the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship, scoring 1-1=2 points with a +12 rating in seven tournament games.
Tokarski, 27 (9/16/89), made his Anaheim debut on Oct. 28 versus Columbus, stopping all five shots he faced after coming on in relief of John Gibson during the third period. Tokarski owns a 10-12-5 record with one shutout, a 2.84 goals-against average (GAA) and .904 save percentage (SV%) in 34 career NHL games with Anaheim, Montreal and Tampa Bay. Tokarski has also appeared in five career NHL Playoff games, including a 3-2 overtime win in Game 3 of the 2014 Eastern Conference Final on May 22, 2014 at the New York Rangers.
Acquired from Montreal in exchange for Max Friberg on Jan. 7, 2016, Tokarski posted a 2-0-0 record with a 3.50 GAA and .885 SV% in two games with the Gulls this season. The 6-0, 205-pound goaltender was originally selected by Tampa Bay in the fifth round (122nd overall) of the 2008 NHL Draft.
